  • Truex: “This weekend we’re at Pocono Raceway and it’s a home track for me; it’s close to home, about three hours. So it’s a place I grew up going to and I’m really excited to get there with the new aero package. Nobody knows what to expect and I think it’s going to make for a great race. We’re coming off our season-best finish of sixth place at Charlotte, so we’ve got a lot of momentum going behind us. We’re ready to go hopefully run in the top five, maybe have a chance at a win, and hopefully we can get Phantom Fireworks into victory lane.”
